On Tuesday, April 12, over 500 business, civic, and government leaders came together for our 2016 Gala, The Many Faces of Mental Health, to call attention to the diversity of people who grapple with mental health challenges and to celebrate the innovative leaders, programs, and technologies bringing treatment, support, hope, and health to those striving to achieve emotional wellness.
The faces of mental health are all around us. They are veterans, athletes, students, co-workers, senior citizens, and family members. They can be seen on the battlefield, on the sports field, at school, at work, and at the grocery store. All of us as a community must provide support for those who need it.
